In January 1936 Alfred Hinde, a 67 year old watchmaker and repairer, of Winstanley Road, was knocked down and killed by an omnibus at Wellingborough. Hinde was briefly suspected at the time of the Whitechapel murders of being Jack the Ripper. Hinde went to assist a woman calling for help and fought with the woman's assailant, who subsequently made off. A passing detective thought it was Hinde who was the woman's aggressor and took him to the police station where he was detained. Witnesses soon came forward to clear him. Hinde, who was injured in the struggle with the man, had his hospital treatment paid for by the police.
